Monday Moment - A treat

When was the last time you were treated to something really special, or treated yourself? In the last couple of weeks three friends have offered to treat me - to a sumptuous dinner, to a night at the theatre and to a holistic treatment. I have accepted graciously.

It also reminded me that it is so long since I really treated myself - and by that I mean treating myself without guilt, without the sense of 'I shouldn't really'. I can't remember when I last treated myself purely out of love and appreciation for me. And that I find appalling!

It doesn't have to be an expensive treat but it does have to be given and received with love. Ideally it would be something you just want rather than need.

How shall we treat ourselves this week - and every week?

Monday Moment (on Tuesday)

This is November's inspiration in the Oprah magazine. It's so lovely I thought I'd share it.

Hold onto what is good even if it is a handful of earth.
Hold on to what you believe even if it is a tree which stands by itself
Hold on to what you must do even if it is a long way from here...
Hold on to my hand even when I have gone away from you.

(From Many Winters by Nancy Wood)
